Roof Coating

I am in the process of repairing old roof coating on 2000 Georgie Boy CM. I believe it is a rubber roof but can't find info in our manuals. I would like any info on what type of roof this is?

Just to throw out there. I was visiting the Line-x distributor that did the lining on my pickup bed. He said to just bring the pickup in and they would see what they needed to do to fix it. I asked him about motor homes and he said they charge about 100 per foot. He told me he had bought a motor home 14 years ago and he Sprayed bedliner on it and it is still in great shape. Instead of going with rubber which does not have a super long life span you might check out Line-x or rhino. I prefer line-x because the company warranties the product. Rhino liner is warrantied only by the facility that installs it. If they go out of business you lose your warranty.

I think I'd have to see the roof to believe it or hear from more who have tried it. A roof is a lot more flexible than a bed liner and I'd be concerned the flexing may cause cracks. But if it works I have a whole metal building I'd spray it on!

It is a different formula. It does work and it is costly, but chances are that it would be the last money you spend on the roof for the life of the motor home or trailer

I agree that a coating like Line-X would last the life of the roof. I had the floor and 18" of wall in our trailer coated with Line-X and it works well.The cost is what keeps me away, I think 3 to 4 hundred is easier than 3 to 4 thousand to handle.

I would have agreed with you but I have seen how flexible it is. Not too long after I bought my truck I was throwing firewood in the back. A piece happened to land just right on the wheel well and dented it in. The body shop I went to said they could hammer it back out straight enough I would barely notice it. The original dent was easily a 1/2inch to 1 inch deep I figured it would break my Line X lining off. They repaired the dent and the line x moved right back out with the metal did not hurt it a bit. It is a very good product.
